Ross Taylor announces international retirement.

Ross Taylor has announced he will retire from international cricket at the end of the current home season with the upcoming series against Bangladesh being his last Test cricket before he finishes with the ODIs against Australia and Netherlands.

Taylor, 37, currently has 110 Test caps and is New Zealand's leading run-scorer in both that format and ODIs.

He made his international debut in an ODI against West Indies in March 2006 before playing his first Test against South Africa in November 2007. His top score of 290 came against Australia in Perth.

Taylor, who was at the crease alongside Kane Williamson when New Zealand secured the World Test Championship earlier this year, had previously spoken about making the 2023 World Cup but has decided now is the time to call it a day and not be available for the South Africa Tests later in the season.

New Zealand are due to tour Australia for three ODIs from late January then play Netherlands back at home.

He is also the first cricketer to play 100 matches in all three formats.
